I started this post about a couple weeks ago before the Sandy Hook Tragedy. I can’t stop thinking about the “little angels” that so senselessly lost their lives and of those who witnessed the carnage of their classmates and mentors. I remember when my children were that age (they are now 29 & 32). They were so full of wonder and trust. Christmas for them was such a magical time.
Those 20 little angels who will never again see the snow covered garden…
…the deer in the woods
…or the lights of Christmas
Their tutus will hang in their closets….
…their toe shoes untouched….
In the weeks ahead we will try and comprehend what happened, and why. What do events like this tell us about human nature, and what can we do in the future to encourage the good in all of us.
